World Legend of the Middleweight

kurentsov-1965


History in Color:


The cover photo features legendary Soviet middleweight Viktor Kurentov, Olympic champion, 5x World champion, 7x European champion, 9x USSR champion and a holder of 22 world records set in his outstanding weightlifting career.


I wasn’t able to positively identify the tournament depicted on the photo. In my estimate, the black-and-white original was made in 1965.
